That you know of!

I knew Knotty was a girly, maybe I am psychic.

And Jean, no it is not at all sad! Some of the best and most adventurous RIB drivers I have known are girlies. There is one lady locally who continues to out drive her very nicely rigged RIB, much to the disgruntlement of the testosterone fueled speed freaks that get in her way.

Lee from Leeway was really good during the build. No problems with communication. The product is bloody well built as well.

Tell her you want to slip her into a special outfit (drysuit)
And you would like to sit her on a throne fit for only a special lady (suicide seat)
To see the wind blowing through her hair (40+ knots)
And to see her float on a sea of beauty (Which one is the man over board button again??? )

I haven't visited this site for probably 9 months to a year and only posted once I think..

The boat for sale in this thread is I'm fairly certain Humbers commercial variant the RH600, I'm certain because I own one myself. If I remember there where four boats initially ordered numbered H1 to H4 . They did service in the South Atlantic on Fishery Protection work with J H Marr trawlers of Hull.. Humber did supply later boats for F/Patrol work but this boat looks like one of the originals.
A good friend owned one of the sister boats to mine up until approx 6yrs ago, he fitted Mariner 55 commercials on his and it would scrape 30knots lightly loaded, if it is an RH600 they are v/heavy but tough boats..

Interestingly mine has no I.D plate and neither did my pals..

Hope this is of some help

Stuart
